. >> i'm not sure i agree with the premise that it's a big defeat for president obama. clearly, it's something he wanted to happen, chris. i think he never had it on his agenda until newtown occurred. once newtown happened, there was a sudden shift in terms of the polls, american public opinion, and people said, we need to do something. we can't have small children slaughtered in an i dyllic community like newtown, connecticut. right now the emphasis is can the senate work with anybody. the silent filibuster -- you had a clear majority of the senators, 55, who supported this legislation, and as congresswoman harman pointed out, this was a compromise legislation. this was no hard line. the question becomes, should they have not ever focused on assault weapons? should they have never focused on high capacity magazines? did that waste time? should the president have acted more quickly in the wake of newtown to get this done? these are all tactical measures. as harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, said this week, if you have 90% of the american people and 80% of republicans s
. ♪ >>> at this time next year, on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city to run harder than ever and to cheer even louder for the 118th boston marathon! bet on it. >> president obama, thursday, thoughts echoed by mayor menino today. >>> let's take more about where we go next? with our roundtable. chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz, richard haass and the editor of "the new yorker" david remnick. senator, and the congressman, let me begin with you, whether the subject should be read his miranda rights or enemy cobah abouts. also, the fact that his travel back to his hometown, that was a muslim area, could have been radicalized -- >> that was his brother. >> that was his brother, though, that's correct. we're talking about the two of them together, as to what happened and why it happened. and i think, we got to keep that option open until we find out whether or not there was a connection to the terrorist organization. >> do you agree? >> i'll agree, there is no question. the public safety exception is that we should utilize and that we should get all
thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
